Manbug

Things are a-hoppin' at the LBC, with Jeff Bryant proclaiming his passion for the book he nominated for this term, Sideshow by Sidney Thompson and me singing the praises of my nominee, Manbug by George K. Ilsley. Of course, Sam Savage's Firmin was the book that got the most votes, and it's a fun book well worth your attention, but don't neglect the other two, either.

(And no, even though Jeff, Ed, and I are known in certain circles as The Boyz of the LBC, we did not agree beforehand only to choose books with one-word titles written by men.)

  1. It is that, but I'm not sure it's much more than that....

  3. I don't disagree at all. It's a short read, fun, and it is what is it is, as they say. I'll be curious to see what the discussion brings out -- there may be levels to the book that I wasn't aware of.

  4. I'm with Gabriel here. I found the book extremely slight.
